Each year the Daughters of Penelope Foundation, Inc. makes scholarships available to students because of the generosity of our past and present private donors, as well as because of the munificence of our members/chapters throughout the world.
This year, we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary and are delighted to share some exciting news.
First, in celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we will provide 31 Scholarships totalling $40,000. Secondly, we will be accepting applications for both women and men making our process more inclusive. Lastly, we are working on ways to make the application process more efficient for our applicants by researching and acquiring information with the goal of making things more streamlined in the future.
The application supplied will be used towards consideration of all the scholarships listed below (depending on whether you are applying for an undergraduate or graduate award).
